For the last few Sundays, we decided to briefly introduce a product through video. Links to related articles are provided below if you want to learn more...

The Miele MasterChef wall oven has always been technologically advanced with their simple to use MasterChef controls. It automatically sets time and temperature for the most common types of foods. You can also program your own foods as well.

The best part of any Miele product is its reliability. Miele is the most reliable product sold at Yale at under 5% service visits within the first year. The average service visits for the industry is 20-25% based on our own 25,000 service calls made in 2013.

I saw the new Miele two months ago in their headquarters at Princeton, New Jersey. They had different loaves of freshly made bread. At that time, I had no idea why. I am recently somewhat gluten free, so it was painful. I love bread.

New Miele M Series MasterChef Plus Wall Oven

One of the main features ofthis oven is its bread making ability. You have 15 different automatic modes to cook bread alone. You can add that to the 19 different automatic programs.

The real differences in this years product is an even more robust control system. You can control inside and outside temperature. It also has twin convection like Wolf and Jenn-Air for more even cooking. You can also plumb this to cook with steam for more healthy cooking (I have to see this work). In late 2014-15, you can hook this to Remote Vision and Miele can monitor the oven for irregularities.

Miele vs. Dacor, Wolf and Others

As we have written in other articles, wall ovens are changing. Miele will be able to compete just on reliability. The MasterChef Plus has some nice innovations. It will not be as technologically advanced as the Android enabled Dacor, which will email you on cycle completion or play music or allow you to find recipes on the internet from its control panel.

Wolf is reinventing convection with a new fan system due sometime in 2015. Thermador and Jenn-Air will be relaunching as well. Finally, you will have options in wall ovens. Miele is certainly a legitimate one.

A few review sites have placed this at the bottom of their articles. So here is our take: Our mission is to find reliable products for you to buy. Other review sites may say this as well.

However, we don’t love every product. Quite frankly, it costs us way too much money in repair costs to support less reliable brands.

In fact, we sell fewer brands than most appliance stores. Here is why:

We feel it is our responsibility to repair your appliances after you buy them.

We now have 30 service technicians, each averaging 8-10 calls a day Monday through Friday, plus another 110 on Saturday. That's over 30,000 service calls logged in one year.

The labor rates of fixing an appliance do not come close to the true cost in any product’s warranty period.

That is why no major retailer has a service department. It costs too much labor, money and time.

Our Blog is a bit different than most others you will read. We cannot write glowing reviews of unreliable products.

Hopefully, the bloggers and organizations who write such glowing product reviews for every brand consider servicing these products first. Only then they will understand the consequences of their marketing.

My goal has always been simple: I want Yale to be the best retail experience anywhere. I have tried to create a compelling environment for customers and employees alike.
